“Great friendly restaurant”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

I arrived in Nikko at 8pm. Having checked in to my hotel I was looking for somewhere to eat at about 8.30pm. Most places were closed or at least empty. Maruhide had a few people in and the staff were very welcoming.

The food was good - I was surprised how nice the yuba was (especially the ramen in tomato sauce and the deep-fried yuba burger). My friend had pork which was also good. The menu was in English and the waitress helped us with anything we weren't sure of. As well as local dishes they serve pizza (which I didn't try).

There was a good selection of drinks including sake served in a large glass on a traditional wooden drip tray.

I would definitely go there again.

“Yuba and Pasta”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

The town of Nikko is known for yuba. Yuba is soybeans that have been fermented and stretched into long threads. What this restaurant has done is combined yuba and pasta topped with a tomato sauce. It is like eating spaghetti topped with yuba. It is a very healthy dish. The restaurant also has a combination dish where yuba is served in 3 different ways: yuba in miso soup, yuba ramen, and yuba custard. They also have yuba ramen, yuba soba/udon, tomato yuba ramen.......just about anything served with yuba and noodles. They also have other appetizer dishes like fried chicken and squid. A very friendly atmosphere!
